You've summed up something that a lot of people seemed to have forgotten about. Simply put I agree completely.
There are a lot of unfounded giant ego's here and these people make rude, unwanted comments that makes AS and it's member look bad.
I see people posting in a thread saying something simple like " Thread already posted" or "use the search function" and I wonder if they even realize
they are violating the T&C and writing off topic,one liner posts. Do they even care about the T&C?
It just bothers me to see people seeming to pretend to care about ATS and then step all over it as they pretend to care.
Lead by example everyone. It's time we all quit with the one liners off topic posts, attacks, insults and more.
ATS is better than that. I was lucky enough to join at a time when the threads and posts were at an all time intellectual high and have seen quality
go up and down. Right now, the quality of member posts is declining in general and it should not be.
ATS is the best of the best of the world and we all have a lot to bring to the table. No member is more important than any other. Which is why I hate
to see the word "noob" get thrown around. It implies that a new member is not as important. Which is simply not true.
New members bring a lot to the table and new ways of looking at things. You are not better just because you joined before them... That is ego coming
into play and simply put. You are not better than anyone else here.
Show everyone the best you, you can be. Show everyone the best ATS, ATS can be.
This is a member driven site.So let's start driving it back in the right direction. We are representatives of ourselves and ATS when we post
It feels silly to have to say this to other adults but it needs to be said.1) Treat others the way you wish to be treated. 2) If you can't say
anything nice, don't say anything at all.
Peace and love.
